The Modal Analysis of Roller Chain Drives
Aiming at calculating the natural frequency of roller chain drives, the software Catia was used for modeling the roller chain drives accurately and Ansys Workbench was applied to analyze the modal and harmonic response of the tension side chains, comparing the natural frequency and the theoretical calculation results of simplified model. The results showed that the deviation increased with the increase of the order of natural frequency and modal numerical simulation provides certain reference for engineering application.
